You did say you were an 11yr steward correct?
Asking questions is how people learn. I don't fault him just because he's a steward. I know some stewards that can't answer a simple question without texting our BA to get the answer everytime.

Plus this T-S language is relatively new.

Hey I never go to work on my vacation at all. I know for sure I will not go in on my day off. I don’t answer my phone if they call do that.

I think it depends on your building too. I think if u have good personal u got a good group u will do well. Right now we have a good group but we need people to work on pulling there work so put people have there good days and bad days too.

Our center transitioned a few weeks back.

They kept a skeleton crew of the top seniority guys for M-F, (to handle the air sort).
The rest of us were moved T-S.

Ask your manager if he/she/it plans on putting up a bid sheet for staying on a conventional work week.

Just like anything else, they have to offer from the top, and force from the bottom. And that's assuming they use PT on Mondays, which your center may not.

I will say I wouldn't trade back even if I could. Monday people are always calling off, and so they have to call in T-S people. Unlike working Saturday for time and a half, Mondays will earn you double time. Something to think about.

If I worked preload I would work 6 days. Early wake up early morning leave. It’s more money. I don’t know if each local is different for preload work compensation but ours is ot over 5 hours and regardless of hours auto ot on saturdays.

I am 6th on seniority list on part time so I should be fine. More money is always good, I sometimes stay after to scan boxes when drivers leave. We have about 35 routes right now and it does go up to 60 during peak.
